Overview

This long since promised and greatly expected volume of the reverend author upon the Divine Attributes, being transcribed out of his own manuscripts by the unwearied diligence of those worthy persons that undertook it. Enough, assure thyself, thou wilt find here for thy entertainment and delight, as well as profit. The sublimeness, variety, and rareness of the truths here handled, together with the elegancy of the composure, neatness of the style, and whatever is wont to make any book desirable, will all concur in the recommendation of this.

“God owes nothing to the holiest creature; what he gives is a present from his bounty, not the reward of the creature’s merit.” (Volume 2, Page 212)

“God is immutable in regard of knowledge. God hath known from all eternity all that which he can know, so that nothing is hid from him. He knows not at present any more than he hath known from eternity: and that which he knows now he always knows ‘All things are open and naked before him’ (Heb. 4:13).” (Volume 1, Pages 321–322)

“Tis so twisted with reason that a man cannot be accounted rational, unless he own an object of religion; therefore he that understands not this, renounceth his humanity when he renounceth a Divinity.” (Volume 1, Page 30)

“But the nature of God is the foundation of worship; the will of God is the rule of worship; the matter and manner is to be performed according to the will of God.” (Volume 1, Page 178)

“The design of our Saviour is to declare, that God is not taken with external worship invented by men, no, nor commanded by himself; and that upon this reason, because he is a spiritual essence, infinitely above gross and corporeal matter, and is not taken with that pomp which is a pleasure to our earthly imaginations.” (Volume 1, Page 178)

    A classic work, weighty in revelation on the majesty of God, but not without its depersonalization of His personhood and form. Not atypical of the puritans, just wished they would have de-Greeced a bit from their Hebrew hellenizationism.
